shadesclub™ - The World's First Subscription Box for Sunglasses!
shadesclub™ - The World's First Subscription Box for Sunglasses!

We all love sunglasses! They’re the first thing someone notices about you. Having the right shades can be the difference maker in how we look, how we feel, and even how we perform. Most of all we just want our sunglasses to go together with everything we do just like hats, shoes or handbags. shadesclub™ is an all-inclusive solution for sunglasses.

Tired of paying $100s for sunglasses and losing them? 

Sunglasses are expensive! Marked up to over 20 times what they actually cost to make. With the huge price tags, it’s been impossible to afford all the sunglasses you need. You lose and break them easily, and they’re a pain to purchase and replace. Fighting over parking spots, long lines, poor service, the locked up cases, the brutal price gouging and shadiness. We were completely fed up.

So, we created a new way! We’re cracking open the sunglasses vault, giving you access to the one combination that’s always demanded, but never existed: Sunglasses that are incredibly designed and incredibly priced at the same time

Make no mistake – there was a lot of work to be done here! If you were to go out today and buy 12 designer pairs, you’d easily spend well over $1,500.00! 

This, is shadesclub™

It’s 12 premium pairs for the price of 1. It’s an entire collection in your home. We think you’ll really be into it. It’s simple, fun and affordable. Each month your shadesclub™ box will feature a brand new pair of sunglasses, designed for you to create new ways to coordinate and accessorize your world. We added modern convenience of home delivery, super-flexible terms and great service. All at the push of a button.

With shades for guys, and shades for girls.

Designed to fit comfortably for all face shapes!

Our trusted ability as designers is backed by an impressive, less than 1% return rate. We've been fully-focused over the past 5 years, with our own existing brand, Dicks Cottons. People who have tried our sunglasses, appreciate better quality and prices. So if you see a Stickman Logo on your shades, you'll know what it stands for universally. We focus on service and listening to people's needs, so much that owning multiple pairs is the new normal! Our customers have become our inspiration, as well as our friends. Naturally, shadesclub™ was created to take things even further, continuing to disrupt the industry, by pure demand.

What people are saying.

To us a stranger is just a friend we haven't met, yet!

We've secured established industry connections, giving us the ability to make really nice quality eyewear. We pass the savings on to you. That’s it, it’s pretty simple. Finally, you can have the shades you need!

Our designs have inspired incredible pictures from around the world. As such, all of the images in our Kickstarter are from our customers, and were 100% user-submitted.

We treat customer service like we treat family. We'll be transparent and open, the way things should be. If you're not happy, for any reason at all, let us know and we'll fix it. We want your experience to feel like the perfect sunny day at the beach. We let the other companies provide the shadiness.

If you want to see why "designer" sunglasses are so expensive, 60 minutes did an exclusive on the industry. Watch this video and you'll understand who we're up against, and why we need your help to change an entire industry!

 

We're ready!

We chose Kickstarter, to meet people who like the idea of doing things made differently. Fun ideas that make sense, and make life easier.

We have over 5 years experience designing sunglasses. We’re optimistic to hit the ground running and get our initial three-month batch of shades ready for you. So far, we received very positive response from potential shadesclub™ members, from Kickstarter backers, as well as many notable industry leaders. We’re proud to give this to you first, before anyone else. Like all things, no one knows about your movement until it’s moving. So, Kickstarter, we genuinely need and appreciate your help.

We have world’s best sunglasses factories standing by, ready to produce for us. Not only will this make sure you that your membership starts on time, but ensure that it will be the highest possible quality. Getting to the next stage requires ordering in large volumes, which makes getting the prices down to for you, so please share. We’ve added a Kickbooster link below that gives you 10% back for everyone you refer by using your individual link to the campaign! If you were to go out today and buy 12 pairs of designer sunglasses, you’d easily be spending well over $1,500.00! 

By backing our Kickstarter campaign today, you will be one of the first people in the world with a shadesclub membership. We’re in this for the long haul. We will continue to blaze the trail, fueled with fun, creativity, innovation and most importantly your support to build a community. So, grab your friends, and grab your shades. Let’s keep doing this our way. From us directly to you. Always.

Thanks,

- T.J. & Rich

Risks and challenges

We've been in the industry for over 5 years, and we eat, sleep, and dream about sunglasses all day, every day. We've got some great experience under our belts on how to manufacture high-quality goods and fulfill lots of orders for them.

We also have the experience of dealing with completely unexpected issues, and always dealt with them in a way that leaves every last customer happy with their purchase and proud to support our company.

Our existing customers know that we always try to go the extra mile, no matter what. In short, we know what we're doing, and you should be very confident that we will deliver what we say we will, when we say we will. And we solemnly swear that should unforeseen issues come up, we will handle them with the utmost transparency and care for you, our backers. That is our guarantee.

Forecasting Risk
If all goes well during our funding campaign, we'll finish up with a giant heap of preorders for shadesclub. Of course we're trying our hardest to predict our future demand and plan accordingly, but it's far from an exact science. While we have prepared for a large influx of members, it could be slightly off.

Supply Chain Risk
As we've been working with certain manufacturers for several years now, we are confident in their ability to deliver for us. That being said, there could be unforeseen issues that arise that we will solve accordingly.

Acts of God
We're based in Orlando, FL. Whatever happens, we'll get through it together. We promise.
